Availability updates?

Yes my patience gets tested with each new tease of another expansion.  I posted the first one awhile ago stating 'Jan 1, 2022' release date,

now there is a 2nd option for less
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0BMM56M88/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A33BUW0UC6W05V&psc=1
and a 3rd for a lot less (but no delivery date, but does have a 3 - 10 day delivery window.

As I tend to rarely trust reliable resources for my Dominion purchases, who do IRL players use as their (US source)?

I went to a local game store chain (“Games by James” in the Midwest US) and bought it there (They don’t really have an online storefront, sorry). From watching the last couple release cycles, I’d expect your local game store would have it before anybody online. IMO most early online “availability” are scalpers who are just going to hold your order and then fulfill it as soon as it becomes ACTUALLY available.

Did I read that correctly? You were able to buy Plunder in your local game store?  Mine 'Black Moon Games' is still waiting for a release date before they will order it for me.

I mean, I went to the store in-person and bought it off the shelf, I didn’t order it. It’s just a “it gets there when it gets there” kind of thing. If they already ordered it for their inventory and they don’t know when it’ll be there, why would they waste your time processing an additional order when they can’t guarantee it’ll be there before you can find it somewhere else?

Well I ordered one that had a due date of Jan 3rd, now it just got moved to Feb 3rd.  Very frustrating that RGG cannot provide a reliable source for those of us who prefer the IRL version.

Did you order from directly from RGG? I have no idea how their internal operations work, but it seems to me they are a producer first and a storefront second, so it wouldn’t surprise me if they were prioritizing local game stores ahead of their own inventory.

You could probably cancel your order and check your local game store.

EDIT: As an aside, please don’t dog on RGG. They’re not the shipping company. If the shipping company is giving them bad dates there’s nothing they can do about it.
